    Loved your Funky Fresh Kitchen posts! What I appreciated most was the encouragement from you. I’m not always great at follow-through but you never judge and I get a wonderful uplifting feeling after reading your blog. Thank you!

    Now, on with those crockpot recipes. I love to use my crockpot.

    I loved all the exciting opportunities for give-aways. It has been fun to watch all the great recipes and tips popping up as well. It has been a blast!

    I enjoy your variety of ideas, I tend to get stuck in the rut of making the same things over and over!! Thank you!!

    Thanks for sharing your fun menu plans each week. It’s a great help to see other’s ideas.
    I would love to win the ‘get fit’ prize, too! I definitely need to be working harder at it!

    What I’ve enjoyed the most is educating myself on what my family is eating and what we should be eating.


  6. Katherine says

    I am looking forward to trying the pita recipe and I LOVED the opportunity to get the cookbooks at such a great price. Thank you!


  7. Amy says

    I can’t wait to try the pita recipe! I also enjoyed the challenges. It’s fun to think outside of the box and set some new goals.


  8. Shannon F says

    I’ve enjoyed the new recipes with new ideas for meal planning. I feel like my family eats the same thing every week and look forward to more variety!!

    I’ve been in a meal-planning funk lately, so this week I’ve decided to simply follow your meal plans.
    So far everything has been great, and my husband just might be your newest fan. :)
    I have one problem, though, and it’s one I always have. My whole wheat baked goods (pancakes and zucchini bread) are dense and gummy. I just can’t get much of a rise out of them. What am I doing wrong?

    The first thing I check is yeast. Is is getting killed by too hot of
    liquids or is the liquid not hot enough and the yeast is not being
    activated??? Otherwise, I would say use a slight amount less flour. Hope that helps!

    Honestly? My favorite thing? Reusing your menu ideas! And cleaning out my refrigerator to find several jars of homemade grape jelly that I needed to use – and a crockpot meatball recipe in which to use it! Thanks a bunch!


  11. says

    Oh my goodness, I’ve been following your meal plan this week, and this is the best my family has eaten in a long time! I love your recipes and I really thought it would be a lot more work to do all of this homemade.

    You are my new hero. :)

    First time here! Love the recipes! I will be keeping my 6 week old granddaughter beginning Oct 30 and hope to help them by preparing dinner a couple of times per week while there. Since I am basically by myself Mon-Fri (hub is a trucker), It will be plenty for me also! Thanks a lot!
